I didn't hear it on CNN.

But if that's the case I totally agree with you.

I agree with pretty much your whole post.

It seems the Moslem community cannot stop them and in that case whatever is necessary is okay by me.


This is the most frustrating part and it gets supported by the likes of supposed do-gooders who try to excuse it all away by framing it as a david vs. goliath story.

They make them to be heroes.  Just look at my signature.  Its this mindset that reinforces terrorism.  Makes it all 'okay' to target civilians and kill people instead of pursuing diplomatic measures.

throughout the days of the British Empire, they have to deal terrorists.

it comes with the territory.

there is nothing uniquely muslim with terrorism or with revolutionaries.

it is as natural as .............the air and the sky.
as scientific as evolution.

I disagree.  Modern terrorist tactics use a different approach.

By targetting civilians, terrorists are directly challenging the government into action.

So let's break this down a bit and analyze this strategy...

How does the terrorist benefit from egging on a crackdown?

If the government over-responds with excessive force, the more the casualties the more anti-government sentiment and supporters.

What I can't respect about these tactics is the blatent disregard for human lives.

Terrorists terrorize
Terrorists don't seek respect

When you want to terrorize, you seek soft targets.
The softer the better.

Is  it reasonable to expect Han Imperialists to behave any better than white Imperialists or Japanese imperialists?
